I have been participating in Sew Happy Me's Christmas sew along (SAL) of a Christmas stitchery banner. It's a lovely design and I managed to mostly keep up with the weekly block. I loved logging onto the computer each Saturday to see what that weeks block was. I have chosen a Christmas stripe to finish the banner in and hope to have it completed soon. A big thank-you to Sew Happy Me for being so generous in sharing this project. (If you missed out on participating I understand that the pattern is for sale on her blog.)

On the weekend I completed my last bambino pack. Late last year I brought 5 packs of material to make them from Gail B. I have given most of them away as presents to friends and family. The pattern is from Melly and Me. They are very cute when they are made up.

At the craft fair this year I brought a ball of Can Can yarn. It was a 200 gram ball and when I brought it the lady told me it would make 2 scarves (one for me and one for mum). She was right and this afternoon I finished the second scarf. They were a little bit fiddly at times, but quick to knit up once I got started. I think the results are vibrant!
